Remote Probe software compability.



Hello! Can't find any information about Remote Probe compability with other software on same server. So, can i install Remote Probe on Microsoft Active Directory DC? Which other software can cause problem in Remote Probe work? Or no any restrictions about this? Or all depends to Port usage?

You can do that, but we don't recommend to install it directly on productive hosts. Use a Hyper-V Virtual Machine on the DC to run the probe within an isolated environment. This way, it won't cause outages on the DC :)
